I use twitter, and I don't have a whole lot of friends on there. I am looking for more people to tweet throughout the day with! How many twitter friends do you have? I only have 50!

I have got an account and I did look at it but honestly, like a lot of these social sites, I find it somewhat cumbersom to use and very superficial in it's effect. I never bother with it these days

I've given up on using most social networking sites. I usually sign into myspace once a week, just to be sure that no one has sent me any messages, which they usually don't. The same goes for Facebook. I like twitter because it allows me to make a short microblog post from where ever I am, and I really like blogging. I put a widgit on my blog that will show my last twitter posts. I agree that a lot of these sites seem redundant, though.

Hahah! Yay! A new friend. Twitter is easy to use, all you do is update your status. You can write something like "hanging out with my friends" or "just posted a new blog entry" and put the link. If you want to tweet AT someone specific, you would write "@" and then their user name. Like, if you wanted to tell me something specific you could say "@idratherblog what are you doing" (that's my username haha) It's very easy to use. Just let me know if you need any help.

I've a twitter but I only use it for marketing proposes, I've 1200 followers, in twitter is very easy to get followers you just need to follow some people, and some of them will follow you, but many of this followers are just bots.

Yeah, I agree, a lot of the users are just bots. I do not want to add bots. I also do not want to add those people who tweet 8000 times per day, telling you to check out the same link over and over again =)

I try to use Twitter, but honestly, I just don't do it that often. I think I have about the same, maybe 40 or 50 friends - I use it mainly to waste time when I am out and waiting for things, like sitting in the DMV or something.

I have a Twitter account but I don't really use it. I think it's been at least a week since I last logged in. I remember the whole reason that I joined was because I kept hearing so much about it that I finally gave in and decided to try it first hand to see how it was. But if anything, I mainly just look up famous people on there and check theirs out and all that.

I signed up for a twitter account because I blog a lot and I would like to be able to update with a sentence here and there from a cell phone while I am out rather than log on through my phone to a browser and trying to access blogger (the app I have for blogger doesn't work!) At first I only used it a few times here and there. Now I am absolutely addicted to it!

Hey, I do not personally use Twitter, this is because I don't actually need to use it. I don't really think that I would need Twitter, because my life isn't that good. I think that it is good for people that actually do things, so they can tweet about it. Make sure you have a good day, God bless and Happy Lotting!!

I'm on Twitter, but I have been having a problem with my account, my stuff does not show up in the public time line. Maybe I should open a new account.

I like using twitter. I use it pretty much daily. I do not really have many friends on there, yet, though. I think I have around 20. My username there is kjscrafts.
